Great atmosphere to work in. I have worked in a few different industries but have never felt happy to come to work every day. I feel like I am making a difference

Being a manager challenges you every day. Whether it be dealing with a difficult job or employee it keeps you on your toes everyday.

I came to Lubbock as an electrician and worked on the remodel of the new building and once I finished I had the opportunity to stay on as a maintenance director and now have moved on to wide format manager

 

What has been your favorite project at Slate Group?
Being in wide format there are so many special project jobs that you cant really pick a favorite but if I did pick it would be POP projects for Suddenlink and United Supermarkets. I see these projects every day when you visit a store and it makes me proud to know I made those projects happen.
